@MEC4D can you confirm if poses for Dawn2 are backward compatible or Poses for Dawn SE are foreward compatible? I ask as an interested CA who might want to repack a few WIPs as Dawn 2 projects.

Dear Ken, would you be the one who could make a conversion script for DD2 to use Genesis 3-8-or9 poses?

Now that you've asked, I did some testing with the "DUF Pose Converter" script for Poser 12+, and loaded some Genesis 1 and 2 DUF poses over Dawn2, and they worked pretty well. Only needs minor adjustments, which would be needed anyway if you used body morphs that change body proportions.

When it comes to G3/8/9, that's a different story because they are not TriAx figures, and also don't use traditional T-pose. Their rigging is more akin to that used in game engines, where there is only 1 weight map per joint, as opposed to 9+ used in TriAx, so the ball-joints (shoulders & thighs) require double bones, making this quite different from what we would expect. Converting those poses would be more a matter of adapting to a different rigging system, instead of just converting the file format.

For the time being, I will be releasing the "RigControl" script for Dawn2, which is covered in my dev thread here at HW. This was originally meant for posing only the face rig, but was now expanded to control ALL bones on Dawn2, to include regular bones, ghost bones, and ERCs (remote controls). It allows posing everything D2 has, and also creating facial posing presets with an interface similar to Poser's Memory Dots, but with additional features like custom captions and hover over thumbnails.

Yes very interesting !

and @McG. yes yes yes .. because I am preparing something very special ..
I literally (well not really literally but since everyone else uses it incorrectly...) have a briefcase (also not literally a "case of briefs". Or even a case ) full of money (not so much full as overflowing. but yes, money.) prepared to drop on Dawn 2 and anything that so much as even hints of cool *for* Dawn 2.

How I prepared: With the wisdom of figures past: I put $1 in a modest interest earning savings account as soon as Chris revealed that he was working on her. With the compounding, I just bought a house (with cash. More of a *mansion*, really. I've named it "Dawn's Interest". Cheeky, I know.) and still have enough left over for a Dawn 2 buying spree.

Bring it! :p

Thanks so much for the response and the link, Ken! I only use Poser for fbx import nowadays. A DS latter Genesis pose converter would definitely lubricate adoption of Dawn 2 methinks.
